WATCH: Bernie Sanders tries to use Jedi mind trick to convince people to accept socialism…

Bernie Sanders has a new strategy to defend raising taxes to pay for his socialist policies and you’re gonna love it:



Bernie tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the American people “would be delighted to pay more in taxes” to pay for his socialist policies like Medicare For All, etc.

This reminds me of that scene from Star Wars where Obi-Wan Kenobi says “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for”. Because that’s almost exactly what Bernie is doing here in order to justify higher taxes to pay for his mammoth government programs.

What Bernie isn’t telling people, however, is that after paying these much higher taxes how upset they will be when they are forced to wait six months to a year to get a surgery they need now. Or when someone they know dies because they were given a pill instead of that life-saving operation or pacemaker they needed.

  1. Oh and ps Bern, if you steal more of my shit, I’m going to find more ways to take it back. Count on that.

  2. Bernie, these are not the Venezuelans you are looking for. But I bet if you went to the actual Venezuela the people you are really looking for would be MORE than happy to tell you how much they love socialism…while they are kicking yore skinny old butt.

  3. The more this POS gets a platform to speak, the more I’ve grown to despise this decrepit old commie.

  4. Lazy BS artist never held a job in his life, gets thrown out of a commune for laziness…a commune for goodness sakes, honeymoons in Russia, has 3 pretty expensive homes and a wife that has her own financial problems re- VT college. Yes you too can become a millionaire by writing a book he likes to boast, as Mark Levin said about him ONLY in a capitalist society try pulling that in a socialist society. People ready to fall for this because of ” free stuff “.

    1. People ready to fall for this because of ” free stuff “.

      They’re not “falling” for anything. They’re walking into it eyes open and hands out.

      Like I said – the future of this country’s demise isn’t from outside forces. It’s suicide.

      1. They are falling for it the ones that don’t spend time researching and spending time involved in politics as we do.

        1. Y’know, I probably wouldn’t have said it a decade ago, but in the last three years or so I’ve really come around to the position that folks who walk about in a daze, utterly ignorant of what’s going on around them, and not making any effort to be involved in what their “elected representatives” are doing… they’re bad Americans. And while I would sometimes scoff at people who threw terms like “civic duty” around in an effort to coerce/guilt people into something, I’m more and more of the position that a failure to be informed and participate IS a breach of that civic duty. Not that there can be repercussions for it – but, like I said, bad Americans.

          And I say this knowing that it applies to more than a few handfuls of friends and family and coworkers and so forth.

          1. Or maybe they are just busting their asses working and raising their kids coming home making dinner supervising homework baths bedtimes and after doing household chores collapsing into bed to do it all again the next day. Spoken @atomicsentinel like someone that has no family.

  5. This could work for him because we have more takers than payers these days. If everyone had skin in the game I doubt we’d be this far into it. People who don’t pay get to decide how much those who do pay, pay. Disgusting.

  6. Someone needs to ask Bernie if he would like to pay more taxes for some program that he backs that is already implemented — since there is a deficit and it isn’t completely paid for.

  8. So if I pay 2000 a month more in taxes I won’t have to pay 600 a month for health insurance…sounds like a bargain…

  9. It’s staggering how many are buying this charlatan’s oil. A sad, irrefutable indicator of a culture declined.

  10. Um… “delighted to pay more taxes” eh, Bernie? Did you smoke too much ganga during your honeymoon in the Soviet Union, dude? Maybe the small group of unbathed smelly hippies that surround you would be “delighted” if I pay more taxes (although they would find some way of exempting themselves, of course), I would love to tell you face-to-face, man-to-aging-brain-damaged-hippy, that I will resist you taxes, even to the point of insurrection and civil war. There now, Moonbeam, waddya think o’ THAT? Put that in your pipe and smoke it….it goes better with pot though.

  14. Sure, Americans would be delighted to pay more taxes until they come to the realization that it includes them and not just the super duper rich.

  17. Bernie, you’ll be delighted to live in Venezuela. Look in my eyes. You will be delighted. Delighted. Delighted. Now, off you go. And take J-Mao with you.

  18. What Bernie forgot is that Jedi mind tricks only work on the weak minded….and they are already voting for him anyway.

  19. So if I pay 2000 a month more in taxes I won’t have to pay 600 a month for health insurance…sounds like a bargain…

  20. I’d be delighted to pay more taxes if I had health c… uh, comprehensive health care. Just delighted!!

    Unfortunately, these are people who think a sex change procedure on 6 years should be covered under government insurance but probably not insulin shots or decent hearing aids.

  21. Sanders failed to note that in addition to being the ONLY country not guaranteeing healthcare as a right, it’s also the ONLY country in the world that people flock to for superior healthcare.

    Sanders solution to fixing anything is always more government instead of less! The solution to fixing high costs of government is LESS GOVERNMENT and let the marketplace dictate price and quality!

    1. Hey I know, let’s provide comprehensive health cayah to everybody, even from other counties too.

  22. Liar! I don’t want Medicare for all. Where are they coming up with these numbers that the vast majority of Americans want this? Didn’t Obummercare cover the 30 million who didn’t have health care? I despise not only democrats but commie leftist democrats.

  23. He has convinced himself that everyone in America is beneath him.He,Bernie Sanders is going to use his money to provide health care for every one in America.Wow, what a Sweetheart.

  24. This bears repeating:

    Socialized medicine is the keystone in the arch of the socialist state. Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

  25. Once again, this is proof that The Left doesn’t care about us and wants to destroy America.

  26. Bernie said: “The United States is the only major country on earth, not to offer guaranteed healthcare to all people as a right.” It’s NOT a human right! And hospitals are forbidden from turning people away who are in need of health care or treatment.

    So once again, this dumbass and the damned, criminal MSM are lying and/or exaggerating.

      1. @sjmom Your first sentence didn’t show up in my inbox. I wasn’t sure if you were referring to me or Bernie. :silly:

        1. @dr-strangelove LOL. That’s because I initially typed it without the first sentence and then edited …………….just to make sure you knew I wasn’t talking about you.

  27. Why do people from socialized healthcare countries come to the United States for their healthcare? Simple question for the debate, simple to answer too. unless you’re a Democrat.
